Jorge from Winston Salem, NC US rated Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort 8 out of 10 on June 12, 2006
"Note: The reason I would not recommend this hotel is due to ongoing construction for the next year. Otherwise it is a pretty good stay for the price and we have certainly stayed at less desirable places in Myrtle Beach. Our maid service was top notch (at least for our floor) and the restaurant was very good with a typical buffet breakfast at a good price. Parking is almost non existant when the hotel is near full and due to the construction guests are called at all hours and asked to move their vehicles."
